Ever since our first Honduran coffee landed two years ago, we have looked forward to fresh crops of Honduran coffee and what this exciting coffee origin will offer us next. Saul Moises has become a very influential coffee producers in central America. His name, or the name of his farm, La Cascada, can be seen in specialty coffee shops around the world and has become synonymous with excellent quality, experimental processing, and all-round great coffee. Needless to say, despite being our second coffee from him, we are no less excited about it!
Over the years, Saul has invested heavily in quality control and education in order to improve the quality of the coffee being produced by his farm, La Cascada, and today, he most of hos efforts are focused on producing for the specialty coffee market.
The high altitude of the region. has resulted in a pronounced acidity and loads of complexity in the cup, with a delightgull vanilla and brown sugar sweetness. The cup offers up crisp malic acidity that reminded us of pink lady apples, however, with vanilla sweetness, some people have picked up pear-like flavours and caramel as well. A beautfully complex coffee with something different for everyone. This coffee is versatile to brew can be enjoyed as an espresso or a filter; having said that we are really enjoy brewing pourovers with it and seeing just how much of that delicate comlexity we can bring out.
